    How To Make A Shoulder Bag From A Pillowcase How To Make A Shoulder Bag From A Pillowcase Presentation Transcript

    • How to:
      • make a shoulder bag from a pillowcase
      • kootoyoo…click & stitch
      • All we need for this handy little shoulder bag is a pillowcase, some bias tape & a sewing machine.
    • Step 2:
      • This project is all about the folding.
      • Working with the closed end of the pillowcase bring the two corners together so that they meet in the middle. The side seams should be running along the arrow.
      Open end of pillowcase
    • Step 3:
      • Manipulate the fold until you have a nice sharp point & the inside of the tricky folding is nice & smooth.
    • Step 4:
      • Fold the point down to meet the halfway point of the pillowcase.
    • Step 5:
      • Position template as pictured. This is just a sheet of standard size paper (A4 or letter) with one corner rounded off. Just use your eye to judge the depth of the bag.
      • Cut around the pattern piece.
    • Step 6:
      • Reset the pattern piece on the other side of the fold & cut as for the first side. You could measure & mark if you like – but I just use my eye.
    • Step 7:
      • This is what your cut out “bag” should look like.
    • Step 8:
      • When you look at your cut out shape you’ll notice that the shoulder strap is still square. Here is where we fix that up.
      • Fold the corner up towards the middle of the strap as pictured & pin in place.
    • Step 9:
      • On the wrong side of the strap stitch a straight line across the bottom of the fold as pictured.
    • Step 10:
      • Flip the strap over & top stitch around the other two sides of the triangle shape.
    • Step 11:
      • This is what the corner should look like once you’re done.
    • Step 12:
      • Turn the bag inside out & stitch the pillowcase opening closed. Use a nice strong stitch or do a couple of rows of stitching together.
    • Step 13:
      • This step is optional but I think it adds a bit of interest.
      • Just run a line of stitching for a few inches & gather the fabric.
    • Step 14:
      • Attach your bias tape around the opening & strap on each side of the bag.
    • Step 15:
      • Fold the tape over the raw edge & top stitch.
    • Finished
      • Super cute & super speedy shoulder bag from a pillow case.
